Wonder, Wonder, Everywhere!

I have traveled extensively this summer as I have been facilitating training for teachers all over the country and everywhere I go, no matter how far, I see opportunities for wonder. I see books that feature wonder in the title. I am invited to wonder while wandering in beautiful parks. I find that taking a moment to capture this wonder in my Wonder Journal has become a way for me to connect to these many places I have traveled, instead of simply flying in and flying out. It is amazing how easily we can isolate ourselves when in unfamiliar surroundings. What a wasted opportunity this would be! Wonder is everywhere, and it is so important, even for adults, to flex our wonder! Check out this article about why adults need a sense of wonder and how it can actually promote a happier life all around.
